I haven't even written this post yet, and I am already cracking up!!! Forgive me, please!
I have been working on my family room for a couple of months now. (And I use the term "working" very loosely!) Back in October, I ordered an instructional DVD on how to make custom slipcovers. You can find the DVD on Shelley's site here.
While I was on Shelley's site, I came across this project, and of course I "pinned" it! (If you follow me on Pinterest, it's on my 'For the Short People' board. Yes, I really do refer to my kids as the short people. Is that bad?!)
Anyhow, when I saw this DIY dart holder, I knew I had to make it for Quinn!
(Please pardon the crummy pics! I REALLY need to learn to use the camera with the manual settings!)
All you need for this project is an old fabric belt, some ribbon, some "ammo", and about 10 minutes.
Measure your little soldier and determine where you want your ammo to start and stop. Secure the ribbon at your starting point. Then, slide a dart as close to your seam as possible, wrap the ribbon over the top of the dart, and sew another seam. Remove the dart and repeat.
And repeat and repeat and repeat.
That's it! Now let your little soldier try it out, and then take cover!
How fun is that?!
On another note, thank you all so very, very much for the outpouring of prayers, kind words, and encouragment! My inbox was FLOODED with messages after my last post, and it was such a blessing to me! Many of you shared your own struggles and sadness with me, and I am humbled to be trusted with your heartache. I am covering you in prayer.
My husband's surgery went well, and he is back at work today--much faster than I anticipated! He is in pain, but it is manageable. We will have the biopsy results next week, but the surgeon did warn us there might be more surgery in the future. I am trying not to freak out about that, but you know me...
Thank you, friends, for your support! It means a lot! Enjoy the Son!
